Happy Birthday To Me!

I have not bought anything for myself for quite some time due to budget issues.  My recent vacation, and all the bead purchases I made during it, were a present from my boyfriend. (what a great boyfriend and great present!  He’s the best!)

But my birthday is Monday, so I have just placed two books on pre-order at Amazon as a birthday present to myself.  Heck, I can cut out $32.00 from somewhere else.  It’s worth it.

First is Artistic Seed Bead Jewelry: Ideas and Techniques for Original Designs by Maggie Roschyk.  It is scheduled to be released on December 19, so I’ll get it fairly soon.  I just love Maggie’s designs, and I’m sure her design hints will be invaluable!

My next pre-order was for Beaded Fantasies: 30 Romantic Jewelry Projects by Sabine Lippert.  It is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2012.  I’m sure by then I will have forgotten all about the order so it will be a surprise when I receive it.  Exciting!  I have always been a fan of Sabine’s work, and can’t wait to have this collection of her projects.  Plus, this book is a hardcover!

I can’t wait to get them, and will write reviews of both as soon as I do!  Hop on over to Amazon and get your own!

Happy Birthday to you Cat, and your Boyfriend sounds like a keeper. My birthday was on the 16th and I order two books and a kumihimo kit for myself from Amazon also. I got the kumihimo kit yesterday and the books should come today. Isn't it exciting to receive something that you have really been wanting and are able to make it happen for yourself.

Happy Birthday to you also, Therese, even though I'm a bit late. Have fun playing with your Kumihimo!
